Philips Arena

"High Up, But a Good View"

Seat Review From Section 312, Row S, Seat 7
Mar 2014


This was my first time to Philips Arena, and I was disappointed that I would be sitting so high up in the 300 Level. But boy did I luck out being in Row S. This row was at the top of section and really close to the concourse tunnel. This meant we were the first ones to restrooms and concessions between acts and didn't have to stand in long lines.

More importantly, being close to the concourse meant we didn't have to walk down the ridiculously steep stairs. Especially if you have younger ones, you might think that you want to be father down, but that's not the case. You want to be higher up. I saw many unhappy parents carrying their petrified children up and down the stairs and it wasn't a pleasant sight.

Back to my seats, they were pretty darn good for budget seats. There was a clear view of the entire stage and everything Imagine Dragons was doing on this night. The lights were really awesome and added to the intensity of the show! About half the people in our area were standing, and we chose not to stand until the end.

Definitely good for cheap concert tickets at Philips, but if you've got the cash, head down to the Lower Level.

I know it's there so that people coming down the (super-steep) stairs don't fall and topple over, but it's really a buzzkill for front row seats on the aisle. I would definitely try t...

    Great alternative to paying high price for seats. Stage easily seen. Loved the fact that we were seating on the front of the section at the rail. is the best way to search, compare and buy tickets. Select an event to find out why!
